Hello!
Im trying to perforate my self made pages, but I have 15 rings binder which I would like to use.
Does anybody knows about any tool which can do so, maybe a regulable puncher or something like that?

Thanks

Lgrodri, why not go down to your local printing shop and ask them. I would think that they may have the equipment to punch as many holes as required in one shot. Seems like the easiest solution.

I created a solution for my 13 ring binders. It is expensive. For a high quality punch that accepts many custom "punch stops" with 5 included as standard on the device, that was over $300. Then, to add 8 more punch stops cost $170. Then I bought extra punches , because if you're going to spend this much on the puncher, you will want to punch a lot of holes that wear out the bits. Those were $20+ each. Then, the bees wax to lubricate the punch. Then extra plastic pads for the punch landing pads,, etc. All in about $600. Works like a dream if you are patient using it. If you want to spend that much I can provide the supply chain.

Hi

I agree with No1philatelist. For printing, or printing related needs, I am a strong supporter for the local "mom-and-pop" print shops. They have resources and knowledge for all sorts of printing related issues.

Yes, try a print shop first.

I use 22-ring binders which are popular in Britain and Europe. But first I had the advantage of finding a 22-hole punch. It turns out to be a standard size used industrially in the U.S. though it's not that easy to find. Without being able to find an affordable hole punch (about $40), I would not be using 22-ring binders, believe me.

I doubt it will answer to the needs of igrodri, but here is a chart of ring quantities and intervals, with manufacturers, etc. which may be of use to one or another of us, or perhaps just of interest.
And people think our interest in perforations is intense....

Thank you for your responses.
I have found a puncher which allows regulation on distance between holes.
Only four punches, but maybe will work.
Regards

Jbodo, can you send me the supply chain to build the tool you mention? Thanks
I'm interested

Jleb1979: it is interesting to notice that none of the commercial perforations fit one to another

Local printing shop: I will ask, but I'm afraid that prices are very high on that kind of special works.
